    Default USB connector doesn't work

    I'm having this irritating problem with my GN3 (N9005) that it's USB connector isn't working.
    It started a few days ago. I was playing some game and suddenly the phone did a little vibration and the Dock page appeared and it was gone in no time.
    I considered it not important and kept playing. After some time I connected the phone to PC and it did not recognize the device.
    So I rebooted the phone and it didn't work again. Now the AC charger has the same problem, it won't charge the device.
    The weird part is that upon booting, after I enter the pin code the phone goes into USB mode without the cable even being connected.
    I even tried wiping the phone to no avail.
    I've tried different cables and different PCs to the same result.
    Today it's escalated to not working at all. No charging, no pc connection, nothing.
    Some said that it might be a loose port, but mine is completely snug.
    The only reaction I get from connecting the cable is when the phone is off and it goes into charging mode.

    So I'm in need of a desperate fix.

    After some more tampering I realized that if the battery percentage is more than a certain amount (somewhere between 50% - 80%) everything's fine but below that it gets messed up.

    Are you using the original cord and charger? Older chargers (ones below 2 amps) may not charge your phone because they do not have enough power output.
